The REIKI Place
DEGREES are the various levels of Reiki that are taught and their associated attunements, symbols and lessons. 1st & 2nd Degrees = Reiki Practitioner. 3rd Degree = Reiki Master
2nd Degree - Is the follow-up to Reiki I where applications/uses of Reiki are further explored. Two more Reiki symbols are learned at this time. The attunement for the emotional/mental symbol, Sei Hei Ki (A), and the distant healing symbol, Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen (B), are received at this time. This degree refines and expands the students' ability when giving Reiki treatments.
1st Degree - Is a beginner course for Reiki. History concerning the subject is discussed and the first symbol of Reiki, the Power symbol Cho Ku Rei, is received through attunement.
This enables a student to "turn on" the Reiki energy. Depending on the teacher, this symbol can be drawn two different ways (see pictures at left).
3rd Degree - A "Master" symbol is received. With this instruction it is possible to teach and pass on the Reiki attunements to others. This Master level requires practice and tutelage that is overseen by the attuning teacher and has the potential for becoming a relationship that will last for a lifetime. It is suggested that you do some research before signing on with just any teacher as this association is not only very supporting, but can be life-forming as well.
WHAT ARE ATTUNEMENTS?
LINEAGE is the listing of Reiki Degrees/Attunements and the associated teacher known as a Reiki Master. Below is a list of my lineage.
ATTUNEMENTS are given by a Reiki Master who facilitates a direct link between the univeral energy and the receiving student. After the first Reiki attunement, where the "Power" symbol is received, the student then has their own direct link to this universal, healing energy. Each attunement becomes a "lesson in life" as events occur to challenge the status quo. Reiki attunements can jump start your personal growth this way.
